Freshly Made Sketches #29

Guess what??!!  I am the sketch hostess for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches!!  When I chose this sketch I had designer papers in mind.  I’m hoping it will be a great way to showcase some of your favorites!

I chose to use the Paisley Petals DSP since it has such pretty spring colors.  My only debate what which stamp set to use.  I decided to go old school and pulled out a retired hostess set called Of the Earth.  This set was a favorite but I didn’t use this particular stamp very much…not sure why!! It seemed perfect here.  I inked it up with lighter colors and then added darker colors for accents.  After doing that, I sponged over the stamp to soften the lines.  I always seem to need thank you cards so I chose the sentiment from Day of Gratitude.  Such a pretty font!!  Finally, I added a little button for some balance to the card.

I hope you like the sketch and I know you will love the cards the design team made with it!!  We have two new guest designers for the month of April, Kathy Tanner and  Lisa Johansen, and they are amazing!

Not sure if I can post again before the weekend so I want to take the opportunity to wish you a wonderful Passover and Easter weekend.  Thanks for stopping by today.  See you again soon!

Stamps:  Of the Earth (hostess, retired), Day of Gratitude; Paper:  Paisley Petals DSP, Early Espresso, Whisper White; Ink:  Calypso Coral, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso; Accessories:  Neutrals Buttons, White Baker’s Twine


I think we always forget that, as card makers, we don’t use a whole 12×12 piece of DSP; we’re just using a little bit. I especially like how you broke up that large-ish block into 2 blocks; keeps it toned down. You rocked this one! Don’t know how you do it with family, flying, etc etc etc.
